OK so, what’s new?
I am applying more of a ketogenic/paleo approach to my diet lately which means I’ve lowered my carbs, upped my fat as I am in healing mode right now.
And it’s working. Every day I feel better and better and I’m pretty sure I’ll be back to normal soon.
Many healing diets focus on lowering sugar even natural sugar and that’s exactly what I’m doing too.
I am hesitant to call these ‘low carb’ because when most people go on a low carb ketogenic diet they end up eating 20 carbs or less each day – and I personally think that’s way too low.

The focus of all meals in my opinion should be an abundance of veggies or some fruit so that your body gets enough fiber and your digestion functions properly.
Without a fully functioning digestive tract, your colon is going to get clogged and this is the cause of a lot of disease in the body.
So veggies are essential!
So let’s not ever limit veggies.
But saying that – there are definitely lower carb veggies that we can eat in abundance like leafy greens which just happen to be a powerhouse of nutrients and contain very little carbs and calories – win win.
So, in my opinion almost all meals should include leafy greens.
And it just so happens that you can’t taste them at all in Green Thickies which is pretty impressive.
So how else have I changed my Green Thickies?
I am including less sugary fruit and sometimes no fruit at all, more fat and similar amounts of protein.
Believe it or not, contrary to what we’ve been told – fat burns fat.
Low fat makes us crazy and sick.
Good quality fats from real food such as avocado and nuts are essential for good health and a fast metabolism.
So that’s why this high fat smoothie is actually a fat burning machine.
And it also includes two energy boosting ingredients, cacao and peppermint.
If you replace your breakfast with this smoothie you’ll be zinging and singing all day.
Not to mention your clothes will be getting looser.
With no further ado, here is my recipe video for the Peppermint Chocolate Green Thickie.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
